Water Softening vs. Water Filtration

It’s not uncommon to question the difference between a water softener and a water filter, or, wonder which one would best benefit your home. We hear these questions often! Let’s begin by taking a closer look at what each of these solutions do, and how they can help your house.

Water Softeners

You may already know that water softeners transform your home’s water by removing hardness-causing minerals and contaminants like, magnesium and calcium. Some of the benefits of using a Culligan® Water Softener at the Lake of the Ozarks include: reduction of soap scum and scaling, reduction of hard water spots on glasses, shower doors and fixtures, cleaner skin, hair and brighter clothes, as well as, a lower water and electricity costs. Softeners typically use salt as the primary chemical agent in modifying the properties of water, while filtration can encompass many more methods to alter water, like reverse osmosis.

Water Filtration

Filtration systems employ more encompassing technologies to remove water pollutants. The Culligan® Water Filtration Systems remove contaminants from water, such as: iron, copper and other metals. As well as, industrial and pharmaceutical byproducts like pesticides or hormones, and dirt, silt and other sediments. Culligan offers a variety of water filters designed to target the specific challenges of your home’s water. The filtration systems range from smaller products that filter at the point-of-use, reverse osmosis filtration systems, and others.

How To Know Which One To Use

Since each of these solutions focus on different water-related issues, deciding on a softener or a filter should largely depend on what's in your water. For example, if lime scale buildup is a constant headache for you, that's usually a sign that your water is hard and a softener will alleviate some of those frustrations. If your water tastes or smells strange, a filter might be the more effective choice to remove culprit contaminants from your supply.

Not only will you see noticeable changes to the quality of your water, but you may also notice big savings on your bills.
